This paper compares the features of direct current and radio frequency (RF) plasma spraying, but also the properties of aluminum coatings that are reinforced with short carbon fibers and manufactured using these two methods. It shows that the embedding of the fibres during the RF plasma spray process is very poor due to the low velocity of the plasma jet. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
